Gucci Hotels Chain

Hotelier Elisabetta Gucci (the daughter of the fashion designer Paulo Gucci) has unveiled her plans for a global chain of luxury hotels.

The 40 new lifestyle hotels are to be established over the next 15 years and the first of the chain’s hotels will open in Dubai’s media city at the end of 2010. Construction of the luxury boutique hotel with 87 rooms in Dubai is nearing completion, with the interior being started on this month, and the next destination is China next year.

Partner Lorens Ziller of Elisabetta Gucci Hotels & Resorts told Reuters that the plans include new hotels in Russia, China, the Far East (including Abu Dhabi), Africa and South America – especially Brazil, and he expects that the plan of 40 hotels in 15 years may be released.

An overnight stay at the new boutique hotel in Dubai is expected to cost from around £200 dollars to just over £3000 pounds per night.
